super sunday!

As many people are vegged out in front of the tv watching the Superbowl, I'm painstakingly re-piecing these diamonds. The first time I stitched them all together I didn't think that perfection was necessary (when piecing squares you can always trim them!) but diamonds are a different story. Anyway, a glass of wine and Whip It on dvd is making this much more tolerable.

On my design wall. I've had this Fandango charm pack and I seriously love this line. The colors are just so warm and the prints really complement each other perfectly. I don't know what to do with it yet, but I like looking at the squares all together on my wall!
This is my block for the Sew Fresh Fabrics scrap bee. They sent scraps in the mail and we could make whatever block we wanted. We send them back and they're put together and donated to Project Linus. I just started sewing strips together, cut them apart, turned them around, played some more and voila. It's not my favorite block I ever made, but it was kind of a fun process to just piece and cut and see what happens!

This is one of two final fabric shipments - for awhile. I'm happy to add all of these to my stash, but I don't have plans for them yet.

p.s. even though I PROMISED on this very blog that I wouldn't buy any unessential fabric until Sherbet Pips comes out in April, I had to support the local shop where we went for our anniversary getaway. Any fabric with red in it was 25% off so it was kind of a sin not to buy a little something - only 1/2 yard of a gorgeous Tanya Whelan red polka dot! :)

Thanks for looking!


  1. Wow- the diamond quilt is coming along nicely. I can totally understand why it would be a bit of a challenge!

  2. I want to hear more about the Orcas!

  3. I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
